The IACC seminar series is held in San Diego, CA. The series consists of four seminars. Seminar One is the pre-requisite to all subsequent seminars, and must be taken first. Seminar One is offered in fall and spring followed by any one of the other three seminars which do not have to be taken in order.

5. What is the cost of the seminars?
Cost of each session varies. Details are provided when you call or email the Seminar Coordinator at email@example.com.
6. Are the seminars offered online or elsewhere?
At this time, the courses are not offered online, or elsewhere in the United States.
7. How long does it take to complete the program?
The seminars are conducted twice a year in the Spring and Fall (see item 2, above). The cycle consists of completing Seminars 1-4, however participation is not subject to a strict 1-4 seminar sequence. The only prerequisite for attending seminars 2, 3 and 4 is the one-time participation in Seminar 1, the introductory seminar in the cycle. Therefore, Seminar 1 always precedes any one of the other seminars. A complete course cycle can be completed in as little as one and a half years.
8. What is the cost to become a member?
Membership is $150 per year.
9. How do I learn about becoming a Corporate or Individual Sponsor?
Learn about Supportive membership criteria and benefits, then submit online application.
10. What is the difference between the IACC, the IACC-NA, and the AICCE?
IACC is the international parent organization, the International Association of Color Consultants. It is an organization of color professionals specially trained in the functional application of color and the human response.
IACC-NA is the North America (NA) chapter, a not-for-profit organization, and is comprised of IACC educated color consultants, as are in the IACC. We also have chapters in Europe and Japan.
While the seminars are originating from the international organization, the IACC, in the U.S they are organized and administered by the AICCE, or American Information Center for Color and Environment. Frank Mahnke is director of the AICCE and teaches most of the seminar series.
